Cab driver thwarts robber, News Day, Melville, N.Y. 03/14/13

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

A cab driver was driving a passenger in Jericho, N.Y. when the passenger asked the cabbie how much money he was carrying and directed him to a parking lot. Suspicious, the cabbie parked and ran from the car while trying to call 911. The criminal gave chase, and repeatedly hit the cabbie with an object. The cabbie, authorized to carry as a former law enforcement officer, responded by drawing a pistol and firing at the robber, striking him in the leg.

When police arrived, the criminal and the cab driver were taken to a local hospital; neither had life-threatening injuries. (News Day, Melville, N.Y. 03/14/13)
